Active Citizenship Education
SAYLN recently developed an Active Citizenship Training Manual which is offered to the membership as a resource to further enhance their Managing Diversity work with young people. From 11-13 March 2015 SAYLN hosted a Training-of-Trainers course in Durban where youth practitioners from SAYLN member organisations were trained in teaching the Active Citizenship Manual in their communities.
Both the training and the manual was very well received by the membership and youth practitioners has since March 2015 been implementing the training manual with young people they already work with. Trainers are asked to give monthly reports of their activities with the Active Citizenship Manual in order for SAYLN to gauge the usability and relevance of the content in communities. SAYLN developed an Active Citizenship Education Manual recently and offered a first Training-of-Trainers to 30 youth workers from member organisations. A high level of excitement is in evidence
about the Manual, it representing a truly ‘home-grown’ and indeed flagship SAYLN product which will promote trainings and learnings at community level – the ultimate measure of SAYLN’s footprint and impact. The Manual are commended not only for its SAYLN goal-supporting relevance and implementation-friendly activities, but also because of its adaptability to the issues and stories of particular communities and (youth) constituencies.
